Restoration of Mighty Michelin Man. Model Detroit 1918 Original Advertising statue from the vintage days. also known as the Marshmallow Man. This is a really cool cast iron statue.
I started with a little squeeze of WD40 rust remover to loosen up the bolt but unfortunately I broke it when I was trying to unscrew it. I did use very long time in the sandblaster because it was rusty and the paint there was left on it was really harsh to sandblast.
I hand grinded a bit of the metal pitting’s away and decided to powder coat the Michelin Man to keep him strong in many years to come. I airbrushed the Michelin logo with bright yellow and painted the tire black with regular matt spray paint. I changed the screws and bolt to new stainless ones to keep my new friend secure in the future.
It was a very nice restoration video to do and my first video in my new awesome playground.
